well i just replaced all my bushings with some energy suspension bushing and a custom bushing on the rear spindle that connects with the rear upper arm which is made of polyurethane and BC ball joints.

Can't wait to see how different the car acts. I'm thinking about doing this in the next year or so but going superpro on the bushings to get the extra caster.

Did you do it yourself or take it someplace? How much did the install cost if you did?

The front LCA compliance bushings look like they have no play in them at all, wont it either limit the pivoting of the suspension or just break apart from all the force placed on them?

Those appear to be Buddyclub ball joints, poly has horrible "memory" when compared to rubber and you press the old bushings out or you can burn them but that is a bit of a hassle.

I would do hard rubber any day over poly. After a while, poly deforms and don't return back to it's original position. I'm surprised the front bushings fit the ITR LCA, I keep reading the ITR LCA has a slightly different bushing (slightly larger) so it requires it's own special bushing.

Looks good though.

im willing to bet he used rubber bushings (i would assume new) to make a mold and then used the mold to pour in whatever material he used


i just ordered the energy suspension bushing kit, i really hope i dont regret it, the whole car is handling like ass lately

I've had an energy suspension bushing kit sitting here for two years now, haven't had it installed yet. To get it installed will be 5-6 hours of labor at a decent shop, at least. So unless you really feel like your car feels sloppy and you want to stiffen it up, it isn't worth it.

I'm saving mine until I put more miles on her and feel like she needs it.
